✨✧ VariousOriginal Raw Soul Vol 2 – Into Space & Time ... LP
Spinning Wheel (Germany), 1998. Used ... Out Of Stock
The second volume to the fake Hotpie & Candy label series of "lost funk cuts" that really aren't, but which still sound pretty darn authentic – and set the scene for a huge wave of later work from Poets Of Rhythm and The Whitefield Brothers! Lots of good funky grooves in a sort of James Brown-y vein, with the sort of stripped down funky feel that you'd expect from the Soulciety label. We don't know the real deal on this, but the liner notes try to tell you that it's a lot of different old bands playing the music. It's all new, though, as far as we can tell. Cuts include "On The Run (Chase Theme)", "Strokin The Girls", "Serengeti Stroke", "Into Space & Time", and "Rhodesian Girl". LP, Vinyl record album

Karl Hector & The MalcounsUnstraight Ahead ... CD
Now Again, 2014. New Copy Gatefold ... $6.99 17.98
They definitely got the title right on this one – because the group never seems to move in any sort of direct line – instead always tripping around nicely with all these hip little twists and turns! Karl Hector & The Malcouns are the same loose collective of players you'll know from their work as The Whitefield Brothers, Poets Of Rhythms, and other famous combos – and here they take on a whole host of exotic rhythms and instrumental elements – but always in a way that mixes them up with the heavy funk we've come to expect! There's a bit more psych at play with The Malcouns than some of the other groups from the musicians – which seems to really set them free to explore the outer limits of sonic consciousness – all with the feel of some weird electric ethno experimental project on a late 60s label like Limelight or Verve. Afro Funk elements crop up from time to time, but always in a relatively abstract way – and titles include "El Gusto", "Girma's Lament", "Kaifa (parts 1 & 2)", "Bring It On Down", "Mission Control", "Who's Foolin Who", and "Sharpville Massacre".

JohnnyOnly Love (voc, inst) (with download) ... 7-inch
Now Again, 2016. Near Mint- ... $5.99
Killer blend of raw funk and fuzzy guitar from Johnny! – spearheaded by neo-classic funk heavy J Whitefield! Whitefield's is a key contemporary funk player to say the least – busting regional and stylistic boundaries with Poets Of Rhythm, Karl Hector & The Malcouns, Whitefield Brothers and more over the years – while always keeping it funky. Johnny! is another exciting chapter, deserving of exclamation point in the name – leaning more on fuzzy funk guitars and raw drums of Ghana and Zambia in inspiration – working with Henry Taylor (some of Ghana legend Ebo Taylor), singer and percussionist Eric Owusu and others. Includes the vocal and instrumental. 7-inch, Vinyl record

Now Again, 2017. New Copy ... $14.99 15.98
Very cool sounds from Jay Whitefield of The Whitefield Brothers – an artist you might know from his funky work in that group, and in the excellent Poets Of Rhythm and Karl Hector & The Malcouns – three combos that were always dedicated to reworking the best funky styles of the 60s and 70s! Here, though, Jay's on a completely different path – one that's very strongly inspired by the more meditative side of Krautrock in the 70s – those records that slowed things down, opened them up, and let the instrumentation find its own sort of special space – often extending into side-long tracks, or tunes that work together as a complete whole. The latter is the approach here – as Whitefield and his musical partner Johannes Schleiermacher work through a brace of keyboards, electronics, guitars, flute, percussion, and other odd instruments – almost exclusively in an instrumental mode, and with the kind of presentation and production to rival vintage albums on the Brain or Egg labels. Titles include "Burgerpark", "Overtones Of Ling", "Dark Echoes", "Neusi", "Makifamba", and "Drohne Zuruck". CD
